Flash Fiction Friday – Caught

I’ve been rather lax about my flash pieces here, pouring my time and effort into getting the various projects finished I wanted to publish this year. With Brienne released, Draxton up for preorder, and Izabel ready for the beta readers, I decided to return to a bit of short fiction.

(Micro)Flash Fiction Friday – Summer, 2016

In between final tweaks to Brienne and Draxton, building a very tiny diorama (check my Instagram for the finished project), screwing up a post here forcing me to repost it, and choosing the couple for Izabel, I carved out a moment for a tiny piece of flash fiction. The prompt came from the same location as the others and isn’t a very happy story. So, if you’re not in a good place right now, maybe wait until you’re ready for it.

(Micro)Flash Fiction Friday – The Application

Another Friday, another short snippet of fiction. Since the last one, I’ve had a small panic when I thought I’d lost almost half of a manuscript’s edits in a file save error, ran through that one with another more thorough editing pass, and did a third pass through Draxton. I’m really happy where both those are sitting.

The Application is based on the image below with the prompt “Where is this house? Who lives here? Is it old with a history or new?” Again, I didn’t stay perfectly true to the prompt. Had I gone into who lived there, it wouldn’t have been a flash short at all, but a potential short story. Besides, this leaves a lot up to the interpretation of the reader.

(Micro)Flash Fiction Friday – The Gallery

Hello! It’s Friday and time for another short snippet of fiction. Things have happened, but most are good things, so I was able to get back to my flash pieces. I have two manuscripts off to beta readers and am plotting the next books in both those series. With a couple of days to completely chill, play video games, and just be, I was able to hop back into things.

The Gallery is based on the featured image below with the prompt “What business is tucked away here, just waiting to be discovered?” It may not be the expected shop, but I enjoyed it!

(Micro)Flash Fiction Friday – The Hunter

Hello! It’s Friday and time for another short snippet of fiction. This week has been… a lot. You know how they say “when it rains, it pours?” as a euphemism for things going all good or all bad? Yeah. It sucks. Just everything. But never fear! I wrote a happy, cheerful microflash of only 246 words.

*Checks Notes* Oh. Oh, no. It’s… kinda not happy. Or cheerful. It is, however, microflash! That’s gotta count for something, right?
